I have managed to find some more documentation
which may help:
Grandfathers name was Guay Gun Chan (changed to
Alex Chan on entry into New Zealand in 1920 at the
age of 18.
He was born 1902 in either Hargee or more
likely Sargee canton province.
His fathers name (according to
grandfathers wedding certificate) was:
Yue Kum Chan (a farmer) and his mothers
name is listed as Lowe Shee Chan.
Hopefully this information can help someone give me some more information.
: I would like to find some more information on the Chan
: Villages of Hargee and I think it is Sargee in what used to be called Canton Province.
: My grandfather left there in the early 1920's to come to New Zealand.
: Any info would be appreciated
